Tales from the Journey - July 2021

Dear friends,

Our CLD leadership team meets for Master Planning every 3 months. It helps us to strategically plan and keeps us all working towards common goals. One of our team’s tasks is to provide training for both Level 1 and Level 2 leaders of CLD groups throughout Thailand. Unfortunately, a couple trainings that have been scheduled keep getting postponed due to the current COVID situation in Thailand. Please pray for God to help our CLD leadership team as we try to adapt to doing ministry in creative ways, including the possibility of conducting our CLD leader trainings in an online, interactive format. Please pray that the ministry of the Center for Leadership Development would continue to be active during this time.

Sometimes we feel like we need some encouragement. Recently, God has encouraged us through the CLD group in the Nong-bua Lum-pooh church. They are excited and enjoying the lessons and have a growing desire to serve God. Ton is one of the students; this past Sunday he led worship for the first time and he did a great job. We were also encouraged to hear that some people in the church have become faithful in tithing as a result of attending our financial management training last November. Please pray for this church to continue to grow in Biblical understanding, love, and unity to be pleasing to God.

God encouraged us through Ephraim finishing a wonderful year in Kindergarten and being excited to start 1st Grade and by Grandpa & Grandma visiting us right now. Grandpa will be the speaker for our field retreat. Missionaries will be gathering in regional locations and joining through an online retreat on July 13-15. Please pray for God’s blessing and protection to be upon all of us.

Waiting can be very hard sometimes. We have been waiting to see Kep for a long time. In the beginning of July, she told us that she had not improved as she had expected. We got a short note from her today saying that she has a cough and a sinus infection, but her blood is improving. Please continue to pray for Kep. Please also pray for healing for Gate; she has COVID and is receiving treatment in a hospital in Bangkok.

Thank you very much for praying and giving to support us and our ministry through the Great Commission Fund; you are a big blessing to us!

Glory to God Almighty,
Mark & Kit and Ephraim
